Comment multi-level preveleges everywhere (Score 1) 91

The SSO/YOLO will be here, we're lazy humans. So I need:

First level with a day use password, easy to "read", some "write" ability.

Second level an "elevated" privileges of the account etc. must have high barrier of entry, different password, call-me-in-person back to verify (not automated though like 2-step verification), single use codes etc. Some execute this when logging from a new device. That's good but not enough.

E.g. I want to check my bank account - "daily use". I want to conduct transfers or change password - "elevated" and hence much tougher authentication.

This way if my first SSO/YOLO gets broken in I could wipe out all the other password accounts in one step with my "elevated" and unbroken password that is not a YOLO. Yes this may not be convenient to execute but hopefully it does not happen very often?

On the other hand 2 step verification every time I use something is too annoying...

How do you stay "engaged" when the car is doing all the driving?

There were accidents where commercial pilots become "disengaged" while plains where auto-piloted.
Complete boredom would put anybody to sleep.
